FOR as long as the Queen has been on the throne, Kent archaeologist Brian Philp has been excavating and protecting threatened historical sites.
But when he was called in to excavate a site in Faversham in 1965, he had no idea he was about to discover one of the most significant buildings in the town’s history.
. . .
Mr Philp, from Bromley, who is set to receive an Honorary Doctorate for his commitment to archaeology from the University of Kent next month, said the project was one of the biggest of his career.
Not sure what his specific role was at the time, an interested amateur? Whatever, seems to have done some good work over the years.
